-- >> president obama has created jobs, particularly in ohio where we restored the auto industry. no one can take that away from this past administration, but what they can attribute to governor romney is let them go bankrupt, and also a misleading and distorting ad that tells not the truth but a distortion of that which is so unfair. they will vote the truth and the truth will set them free, and they will vote november 6th and be free. >> excellent, thanks so much to both of you. i appreciate it. of course, the drum beat carries on. just three days to go until election day. many discussions to be had before folks in large numbers hopefully make it to the polls. thanks so much to both of you. appreciate. >>> it's canceled for the first time in 42 years. talking about sunday's new york city marathon. critics were afraid the race would hurt the sandy recovery efforts. now runners have turned their attention from the race to those most in need.

. i'm optimistic. politically, we have a great ground game in ohio. i have 14 or 15 obama offices in my congressional district. there are people knocking on doors right now, making phones. we have a huge weekend ahead of us for getting out the vote. a mobilized and energized base. we have had bill clinton here, joe biden, the president, etc. politically, we are going to get the job done in the next few days. host: we are talking with democratic congressman tim ryan of ohio, member of the budget committee. if you want to ask him about the race in ohio or budget committee questions, give us a call. democratic line -- 202-585-3880 the republican line -- 202-585- 3881 ohio residents, we still have that line open to you -- 202- 585-3883. congressman ryan, a couple comments on twitter about the jobs numbers. liz smith writes in -- frankly, that few of jobs shouldn't be getting anyone satisfied or excited. another comment from james ard -- the jobs numbers are irrelevant. obama has no hope of americans giving him another chance. your thoughts on those comments. guest: nobody is satisfied
-- that are scheduled. so 17 events. obama has six events in ohio. you can see where his priorities -- three in wisconsin. two in colorado. iowa has one and one in nevada, virginia new hampshire and florida. that's all right? is that where you would be telling them to spend -- >> he wins ohio, he wins. i don't see there's any path for romney to win this without ohio. >> jennifer: if romney won everything else -- >> he could win everything else but it makes it almost impossible for him. i would be in ohio. i would be in virginia. i would be in iowa. >> jennifer: would you be in north carolina joe? >> no. >> jennifer: really? >> yeah. >> jennifer: even though early voting is -- what about florida? >> no. i would spend more time -- >> jennifer: 2 points up. >> you can block -- you know, you force the other campaign to spend money. you keep it tight and it is a chance -- there's absolutely no way he can get florida. >> the thing about this race which i've never seen before in the five presidential races i've worked on, the
of the radio ad that talks about this. >> barack obama says he saved the auto industry, but for who? ohio or china? gm cut 15,000 american jobs, but they are planning to double the number of cars in china which means 15,000 more jobs for china. chrysler plans to start making jeeps in china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in ohio? this same hard-working men and women who were told the auto bailout would help them. mitt romney would welcome the auto industry. mitt romney, he will stand up for the auto industry in ohio. not china. host: so that is a radio ad that we were talking about. this has been on television ads across all media markets as well. guest: what i have seen in northeast ohio, yes, there is a version of that that runs. it has drawn a strong rebuke from the owners of chrysler. again, it is taking two unrelated things and trying to argue that the president is responsible for the shipping of jobs to china. there are investments being made in jeep in ohio. i think it is an example of how important the although voter is. -- the auto voter is. there may be some p
.m., president obama holds a campaign rally in ohio. at 1:00, the new president of penn state's talks about leaving the school after the sex abuse scandal. coming up, a look at ohio as a battleground state. at 8:15, bob bennett, chairman of the ohio republican party talks about romney campaign is doing to win that state. doing to win that state.
in these two counties. that's really important to them. the obama campaign in ohio is telling me they're just basically worried about snow in cleveland on election day because that would drive down their turnout a little bit. they really want to get those numbers out. >> i want to switch gears here for a second meghan mccain. let's talk about the day after the winner is decided. let's go with that. what happens if governor romney loses this thing. what happens to the gop. what type of republican party are we going to see emerge if mitt romney loses the presidential election? >> listen, i'm still hoping for the best that mitt romney will win. i have great faith that i actually do think mitt romney will win in this election cycle. all that being said, anything can happen. i know that just as much as anyone else. if governor romney loses, we're going to have to start reassessing where we are as a party. as your commentator said earlier, statements bied to aiken and mourdock, i don't believe they'll define the election. i think they're hurting our relationship with young women voters specifically
, the finish line is 11 days away and in the crucial battle for ohio, look at this new cnn poll released today. president obama a four point advantage over governor romney. in the fight for women voters, obama has a commanding lead in ohio but a lot can change of course between now and november 6th. the surprise is what john sununu told me last night is not going to go away. it could become a big problem for romney. sununu, a key romney surrogate, has put race and frankly, charges of racism front and center in the final days of the campaign when romney would have least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and fra
week about ohio. without autos, without auto manufacturing, it would be very hard to see how the obama team can continue to have excitement and emotional momentum on their side in ohio. it could very well be that the car situation and the help that this administration provided could be the stonewall. however, you look at this momentum, and mike, you follow campaigns. you follow political efforts. and when you have this kind of momentum heading into the final week, it's got to be a good feeling for the romney campaign as they look at the last eight days of where they are. >> you know, usually in campaigns, joe, you know this better than any of us sitting here because you've been on the ballot. you get an indication four, five days out that something has tipped within one campaign or another. and it's set in motion. and so you sort of know who the winner will be. that's not the case this year. i fall back on something that you keep hearing repeatedly when you're out there talking with people, that the president of the united states somehow -- well, we know how -- did himself irreparable
obama in 2008. what about this year? >> not a chance. >> warren, ohio, and lordstown, ohio. two towns 15 minutes apart with two very different stories. does this town really revolve around the gm plant? >> yes. >> no question? >> no question. >> we meant sherry gaunt in lordstown, long time gm worker and vice president of the local united autoworkers. >> look where gm is now. if the government didn't step in, might not be working, might not have a job. >> here at gm's lordstown, ohio, plant, they're cranking out the chevy cruz. they're got from one shift of 100 workers to three shifts with 4500 workers today. but like most autoworkers these days, she felt the pain of the layoffs. >> how much does it play into politics for you in this election? >> it means everything. >> everything? >> everything. we're doing real well right now. >> her coworkers told us a similar story. who are you supporting for president? >> obama. >> why? >> because he's for the working class. and he helped with the bailout. >> it speaks about his dar character, speaks about his concern for us. >> in warren, ohio, som

. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with the communities depending on autos. the policies that will be good for the auto industry, for the st
. president obama with the ohio, a rally at the frankfurt county could hilliard. we will have that live for you at 10:20 eastern. first lady michele obama will travel to virginia where she will speak at a campaign rally at virginia state university in petersburg, virginia. ♪ ♪ >> this is president obama's third campaign rally. he also held one in wisconsin at las vegas. we are getting an update on another battleground state, wisconsin. >> we focus on the state of wisconsin. joining us from milwaukee is from the sentinel services, a national political reporter as well as the washington bureau and chief. to set up this conversation, a couple of facts in regard to what we have gathered, we are currently looking at an unemployment rate of 7.3%. the president won reelection, can we start with the economics of wisconsin and, elaborate on the unemployment rate and what it means for the state? >> in the unemployment rate is below the national rate, but if you look to the trend in terms of job growth in wisconsin, our job growth has been slower than the national action -- option. we had a fi
. in one way president obama's been -- has been able to, you know, kind of stop whatever poll momentum romney seemed to be getting or at least we were all talking about 50 different polls from ohio. you don't hear about them anymore. since president obama had a lead in most of these swing states, i think political analysts would say it is probably -- doesn't hurt president obama any. on the other side of the net mitt romney has been able to unpack in ohio for a few days, shake a few more hands kiss a few more babies, give a few more press conferences and speeches there. we'll see how it plays out in election night. right now i don't think it's had the impact on this election. it is just -- and votingwise. at least there's no evidence of it yet. we'll see, you know, the stock market opens tomorrow. how will the markets respond to this? you know, you can have a -- the economy rebounding and the president with good p.r., could be a dismal stock market going down and people get jittery and think they want change. but i could
elections. host: pennsylvania -- 20 electoral votes. in 2008, barack obama won by 10%. unemployment in the state is nearing what we have nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting a lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes -- was so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground in pennsylvania, at least the moment? guest: the essential difference is that ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats of done well as they have captured the suburbs of our state in these last presidential elections in recent years. that has been the defining difference -- you have the big swath of in the middle, of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area. obviously the cleveland area in the northeastern part of the state is democratic. the cincinnati part in the southwest is more republican. ohio has a larger pool of the swing voters, if you will, and more evenly balanced between the democratic and
has canceled a number of events tomorrow and is instead campaigning in ohio with paul ryan. on monday, obama will head to the florida institute of technology. in about half an hour, we will take you live to lynchburg for the event with vice-president joe biden and his wife. until then, a look at the battleground state of north carolina from this morning's "washington journal. tell us what makes north carolina battleground state. guest: traditionally, it has been a red state. it is moving more and more into a competitive state, and there are several reasons why. one of the things our organization does is ask every year the voters where they stand in terms of conservative level. only florida and virginia, in terms of southern states, are to the left, so it is pretty divided. it also has political progressives, so it has been pretty much a modern state traditionally. there has been a tremendous influx of people from around the country. particularly in the big metropolitan areas, and none has been changing the politics over the years. in addition, it has a significant african-american pop
war in china this is tough talk to win ohio. >> you want to defend yourself. >> i am an economic patriot and economic nationalist and obama is using my phrase. but i believe romney has gotten himself out to a point with this occurrence manipulator he is going to have to follow through on it. i agree with governor romney here. the chinese are themselves economic nationalists. they steal our property, they do everything under the guise of criminal activity which is what it is and the use does not have a way to fight back. we ought to go back to tariffs and cut taxes on our own manufacturing. >> getting tough on china is campaign rhetoric on romney's behalf. if he gets elected smart advisors will say we can't do this. maybe he will call them names. that is about all he will do. there are bankers, we are not they are our bankers, we are not in a strong position. who pays the price? the american consumer and american economy. >> we have an enormous trade surplus at our expense. >> mort, what is the answer? >> the fact is romney is right in this sense. they have consistently for decade
electoral votes. obama won by 10 percentage points. unemployment is mirroring what we have nationwide, 8.2%. neighboring ohio is getting an awful lot of attention with their 18 electoral votes. what is so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes ohio more of a battleground than pennsylvania at the moment? guest: the essential differences ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to either vote republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the recent democrats have done well is because they have captured the suburbs in our state in the recent presidential elections which has been the defining difference. in the middle of ohio and columbus, that is a battleground. there, obviously with cleveland, but in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and cincinnati and out west be more republican. ohio just has a larger pool of these swing voters, if you will, and are more evenly balanced between the democratic and republican regions of the state. pennsylvania has a huge portion of moderate independent-minded voters and they
here as most of the major battleground states. not as much as ohio but almost as much as any other state. you cannot turn your television without seeing a political ad since probably may. we have a tremendous ground operation here. the obama campaign has something like 54 offices here and the republicans have something like 22 offices here. we have a tremendous amount of energy going into the ground operation. there is a tremendous amount of surrogates coming in almost every day like governors and celebrities and other people. there is a tremendous intensity of campaigning here just not the principles. host: you mentioned governor romney and his meeting with billy graham. talk to was more about that. does dr. graham, maybe his family members and sun, are they taking an active role in the romney campaign? are they just giving their blessing to say that for evangelicals and people of faith in north carolina that it is ok to go ahead and support a mormon? guest: it is very close to an endorsement. you might as well call it an endorsement. he did not say to vote for him but it was clos
to undermine obama's message that the although bailouts were great for the state of ohio. that has proven to be very, very strongly that for the president. something that has vaulted him up among voters who he probably -- who he is not doing well with when other parts of the country, this sort of white working-class voters in specifically northeastern ohio. those voters are the ones who benefit the most from the success of the auto companies. so now the republicans need to sort of base that argument. they need to make it known to other ohio voters the although bailout was and great for the state and didn't do everything it possibly could. this is -- the advertisements are running is based on the bloomberg report that has been since corrected. it's not good for the campaign to have the ceos of two major companies, car companies in ohio in the state where 100 something thousand jobs are based on the auto industry coming out saying this claim isn't true. we aren't going to build jeep silver and china or ship jobs overseas. not a fight the romney campaign wants to have but they have to have b

after the election? not change. megyn: and there you have it the president live in springfield, ohio. it is an interesting juxtaposition, mitt romney arguing that he's the candidate of change which of course was barack obama's mantra four years ago but has become a legitimate debate in this campaign about who really is going to bring change to washington, who can bring change to washing tonight. the president's remarks will be streaming live on foxnews.com if you'd like to listen to them in their entirety. and we'll continue to watch the candidates, it's no accident he's in ohio. it could all come down to ohio although the romney camp says it has a back up plan that they believe is more and more viable as they inch closer to tuesday. they believe they can get mitt romney into the white house even absent ohio but they sure would like to have it. in any event i want to get back to the news now, as we mentioned a moment ago during a campaign stop this morning the president complained about a romney campaign ad that is getting a lot of attention this week. the ad says that the u.s. baile
